Motherhood begins before the birth of your new baby. Your body is already hard at work nurturing your child in the womb. The miracle of a new life growing inside of you is an experience we are blessed with for a very short time in our lives. It is a period of preparation and anticipation. I take great pride in capturing this fleeting time in a woman's life, with gorgeous, tasteful photographs that you will treasure forever.
For whatever reason, perhaps photographing your baby belly is not a high priority. Consider this: You will always remember the first time hearing your baby’s heartbeat, feeling the wondrous flutter of that first tiny kick, and watching your belly ripple from their precious little hiccups. These in-the-womb moments swiftly fade after the baby is born; however, the intimate and personal images captured in Maternity photographs are timeless and beautiful. They show the amazing physical changes in your body as it nurtures your most precious gift: your child. All too soon, your pregnancy will be a memory. Why not make the memory last a lifetime? You'll be so glad you did.
Maternity portraits are best when the tummy is nice and round and Mama is feeling well. This can be anywhere from 28-36 weeks. However, sessions can be held safely up until 38 weeks. These sessions are held either in your home or at a location of your choice. Upon booking a session all factors are discussed, such as the style of session, clothing, personal requests and desired outcome. Partners and children are always welcome.
Once the memories have been captured, it will be time to bring your story to life! This is my absolute favorite part! I will spend the next two weeks going through your images and carefully editing each one.
Lastly, I create fine art photography and as such, the work that I create is intended to be your art. I don't believe there is anything more valuable or precious than our families. They are your masterpiece, this is your story... I would love to be your storyteller!
